to what bill clinton have. >> some liberals pushed the president to raise the debt ceiling himself, claiming he has executive power through the 14th amendment. jay carney reveals today the white house studied that, does not believe the president has the power. that means we are headed for another major showdown with congress over the debt ceilin ceiling. >> bret: more with the panel. ed henry, thank you. republicans are losing one of the most conservative voices on capitol hill. south carolina senator jim demint surprised a lot of people today when he announced he is leaving the senate. but staying in washington to run the conservative heritage foundation think tank. he joins us tonight. >> great to be with you. >> bret: why are you doing it? >> if you look at the 2012 election, apparent that the conservatives need to do more to convince americans that ideas will make the lives better. unfortunately in the senate what we have to do is point out bad policy with the president. that is important job. my background is research and marketing to people. to leverage their assets to commun
the growth. rebound and former president bill clinton hitting the links. this is a photo from last year. what we don't know what was said teen them this year my guest homes the former president was critiquing more than just his successor's swing. art laffer was the top reagan economic adviser and you voted twice for bill clinton because his prosecutor mix of taxes. explain that? >>guest: yes i sure did. but for the raise hikes at top end, he cut taxes on the working people between ages of 65 and 72. he cut taxes on trade and products. he cut government spending as a share g.d.p. dramatically and he cut the capital gains tax rate and butt in welfare reform. what do you want from a president that bill clinton did not deliver? he was a great president. >>neil: the investment taxes was that concurrent with what was going on in the income tax hike front? >>guest: no. it was not. the capital gains tax reduction which he dropped the high of the race from 28 percent to 20 percent but what he really did that was amazing, he exempted owner occupied homes from ever paying capital gains taxes again, $250
-american. maryland did it. >> i'm curious why you think president bill clinton since he has the freedom hillary doesn't, why hasn't he apologized for this stain on his record? >> in 2009 before obama, not a very expansive or hugely heartfelt way, said i'm now for marriage equality. again it was not a big statement. i think he feels like i did that, what more do i have to do. i think doma is such a nasty bit of legislation, codified bigotry, it calls for more robust than that. >> the important divergence that frank is identifying between the two democratic presidents. president obama's justice department did make the unusual step of deciding not to defend the constitutionality of doma, typically the justice department defends everything because it is the lawyer of the laws of the land. here they have the discretion to do otherwise. they did otherwise. it makes a difference. as the lower courts and potentially the supreme court, as they look at this, they look to the political branches and now we have the president of the united states, one of the political branches saying this is not constitutional, i
can tell you, it's not a hard ask, it's a partnership. and actually, as much as bill clinton and newt gingrich loatheds each other at times, they worked together to deal with -- >> on impeachment. >> to deal with republicans like myself on balancing the budget for the first time in a generation, balancing it four years for the first time since the 1920s, paying down the national debt. and you know what? newt gingrich always had to fight us on his right flank, and he and bill clinton sat in the white house and strategized. >> i have a question. >> republican votes for that first clinton budget that set them on the path. >> joe, i've got -- >> hold on. come on, richard. you must have been sleeping or somewhere in britain in '95, '96, '97, '98 and '99 when we balanced the budget for the first time in a generation. >> joe, i have a question for you. let's say boehner goes back to his caucus and says, you know what? from the president's first proposal, i was able to shave off $600 billion in tax hikes. >> right. >> so i saved that. >> by the way, we're going to end up at, like, 1.2, aren't
get something done on this. >> yeah, done. d-u-n. right. i love what the former president bill clinton, the analogy, just a kabuki dance, he said, they're like two dogs that meet over a piece of meat, they sniff each other out, moving to a deal, that's what is going on before we head over the cliff. >> no one puts it in layman's terms, no one does it as well as bill clinton. putting it in terms everyone understand. this is our visual. this is the cliff. end of the year. this is high tech. >> oh! >> ha-ha. >> but, see. that's right. negotiations never go in a straight line. yeah. >> little crooked there. got somer use today. hanging left. >> i hate that. >> bizarre turn this morning for software tycoon john mcafee he was arrested in guatemala last night for entering the country illegally and now there is word that immigration authorities are about to send him back to belize. before his arrest, mcafee spoke exclusively to abc's matt guttmann in guatemala city. >> reporter: after weeks on the lam, software security pioneer, john mcafee has resurfaced in guatemala. where we caught up with
-bowles commission. because in other words it came from bill clinton's chief of staff. this is where the proposal -- >> -- >> listen that's a point. that's how extreme this is, bob. and -- >> in terms of -- does not have the rate reductions, does not convert medicare and does not convert medicaid to a voucher. it doesn't have the structural changes that are objectionable to the democrats. there's a lack of specifics here. but if i'm the president i'm thinking they're putting $800 billion on the table in removing deductions and exemptions i'm going to pocket that and add some of the additional revenue from rates i can get from allowing rates to expire. >> we're going to be talking to senator johnson this morning also xavier becerra about the details or lack of details in the two competing plans at this point and how much bowles is connected or not connected to this plan. still ahead this morning on "starting point" a young cancer patient missing from a hospital and her life depends on finding her. we'll tell you what happened when police found her father. that's coming up. this holiday, share ever
and look at bill clinton after the attacks on the u.s. embassies in africa on august 7th of 1998, it took a little more than two weeks for bill clinton to respond force knee by dropping bombs on the farm suit alplant in khartoum. i had other examples of rather quick, which isn't to say precipitous, rather quick responses in part to send aess message. it's very important for the families and everybody here in the united states to understand that justice has in fact been pursued and had and to send a message to the world, just as the president said, if you mess with the united states there are serious and potentially deadly consequences for doing so. bill: i just want to add this. about a month ago the deputy interior minister said the investigation was going well. about three weeks ago the ministry spokesman said the results would come soon. i put those in quotes because we are still waiting on that. steven hayes, thank you out of washington. martha: remember the homeless man whose picture went viral on the internet when a new york city policeman gave him a pair of socks and a pair of boot
. you go back to bill clinton's tax rates which we did pretty well under bill clinton, you cut some defense spending, which isn't going to get cut otherwise because the defense contractors are in practically every congressional district in the place. and you do make some human services cuts which i don't like but everybody's going to have to put something on the table here. >> steve rattner, i'm sure you would beg to differ with what howard dean had to say as far as the fiscal cliff goes. he says it's not a fiscal cliff, it's more like a fiscal slope. there are some people that occupy the left side of the american political spectrum that would agree with howard dean saying listen, it's really not that big of a deal as deficit hawks are making it out to be. you would disagree, i would guess. >> well, i think howard is disagreeing a little bit, too. i think howard is saying it's time for meaningful deficit reduction. howard's become a deficit hawk. i think howard and i would disagree probably on some of the elements of what constitutes -- >> no, but he's saying it's not a disaster if
, and campaign finance charges, until president bill clinton commuted his sentence as time served in 2001. reynolds says he's paid the price for past mistakes, and it's time for him to get the old job back. >> i made mistakes, but again that was almost 18, almost 20 years ago. i just -- president clinton once said to me, kind enough to grant me executive clemency, he said don't allow the rest of the world to keep their foot on your neck. you have to go forward in life. you have to do things. i'm not a two, three, four, five, six-year sentence, whatever you get, shouldn't be a life sentence. >> sean: welcome to chicago. joining me now david webb and alexis mcgill johnson. not only this girl, but when she said, oh, there's a catholic schoolgirl, 15-year-old friend of mine, he goes, oh, did i -- that would join them, by the way, in the sexual escapade -- oh, dihit th,oh, did i hit the ? >> we know this bad behavior is part of an issue. >> sean: what's worse, foot-tapping or pedophilia? >> when we talk about mark toley, david vitter and -- >> sean: they've become scandals. >> the voters need
under bill clinton. and everybody knows that. 23 million jobs, balanced budgets, all the rest. it's not going to hurt anything. the second thing, the automatic spending cuts. so my view is we can climb down that cliff by doing what the president says on taxes, bringing home the money from the wars, and stopping those automatic cuts. we're off the cliff. and then we get together with goodwill, right in january with the new senate and the new house, and we hammer out the long-range solutions to all this. >> i want to you listen to something that your colleague, pattie murray, from washington state said on alex wagner's show about this fiscal cliff and her attitude toward it. i want to you react to it. >> sure. >> it's not a good idea to go over the fiscal cliff. no one wants to see that happen. it is a bad idea. but a worse idea is to accept a compromise that allows the wealthy americans to continue to not pay their fair share because the result of that will be middle class families will bear the entire burden of the challenges that this country faces. that's not fair or responsible
of the united states, bill clinton, said gee, they're actually serious. we negotiated the first four balanced budgets in your lifetime, the only four. we negotiated welfare reform. he vetoed it twice. we kept passing it. i'm not suggesting that we have to go to that level but they should be prepared to. if they don't have respect for themselves, if they're not prepared to use the tools of the house, the first of which is appropriations, then the republicans announce tomorrow morning the president doesn't want to negotiate, he's not going to have a domestic government on october 1st. >> why don't they just pass some bills? >> sean: i said the last time and i conceded to you and your vast experience. i said pass a bill and you said no. pass a series of bills, send them over to the senate and to the president and let them deal with it. >> and by the way, find a bunch of democratic billings that are pretty good. there's a warner bill on developing offshore oil and gas for virginia from two democratic senators. i can't figure out why the house republicans for the last two years hasn't passed it. >
bill clinton did with medicare as president was cut it and was to, in fact, cut it more than any president had ever cut it before. there were no whimpers out of anyone in the democratic party. it was part of a $500 billion bill, 250 billion of it was tax increase we did, and 200 billion approximately was medicare cuts, also medicaid cuts that were in that bill. they were all done on the so-called provider side. that's the way they tend to do that. those are very difficult cuts to make because we've made so many of them in the past. so that side of the of the system is kind of cut to the bone at this point. >> all right. lawrence o'donnell, thanks for hanging with us. will you hang out again sometime? >> this is a lot of fun. no-homework tv is a lot of fun. >> up next, forbes's list of the most powerful people in the world is out.

that looming fiscal avalanche can we expect anything big to come out of it? doug schoen former adviser to bill clinton. monica crowley, fox news contributor. i it's the thing to do. you get a call. >> president obama has a pattern of inviting political opponents, business leaders to the white house for some sort of confab. what it kals end ends up being is a photo opportunity so he looks like he's extending himself to the opposition, he's bipartisan, and he is neither of those things. bill: would you accept that invite. >> i would accept in a heartbeat. bill: monica is saying nada on this. >> i would be more optimistic on this. we are groping for bi-partisanship. if governor romney has things to share and ways to bridge the fiscal cliff this is all good. bill: we went back to the vault to figure out what they are not going to talk about. we found this first of all, okay. i want you to listen to. roll it. >> i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i had a friend who said you don't just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. bill: i've been in bus
of question too i don't think this is about credit taking. i grew up under bill clinton who always said the best politics is good governing and i think we need to see more focus on solving problems and getting things done in washington than playing politics. i think to recognize there's been real progress made, right the border is safer today, the immigration system is better, the two parties worked together to do that over the last few years. there are still some meaningful things that need to get done. the d.r.e.a.m. act, we have to fix the low-end and high-end visa system. the mexicans are going to do a whole boar border system. i think there will be a lot of room to work together next year to get something meaningful done. if the republicans are earnest and play it straight i think they'll get a lot of credit for working with the democrats to fix the broken immigration system and making it better. jon: getting something meaningful done, it seems like a longtime since that's happened in washington. we'll look forward to it. simon rosenberg. kate obenshane thank you much. jenna: the n
but they got things done. largest tax break in the american history. the 1990s bill clinton, newt gingrich, welfare reform, a balanced budget. confidence in our government to work together. since then we lost confidence in our government to do absolutely anything. we have left our children a $16 trillion debt. we have been in a war for 11 years. and nobody is feeling good about the future of america. look at your last couple interviews about how people feel about taxes. we dropped to number 16. can we get back to number one? yes, we can, but it takes leadership. megyn: how well the government is performing is some of the criteria. your material well being. how secure people feel in their community. quality of community life and the quality of gender equality in the country. over there in switzerland number one, apparently they do have a lot of freedom. they just voted down a smoking ban but voted in favor of drive-in sex boxes. who is conducting the survey? >> i understand where you are going. who is conducting the survey. i was in zurich this summer. i don't remember all of that. but it's
and a failure of leadership and america deserves better. >> it's true when bill clinton left office in 2000 we had you are plus and the deficit would have been eliminated as we sit here today what changed that was the republican president and congress. what put us on the path we are on now is not democrats. we would have no collective debt at all if we had left in place the clinton budgetary strategy. megyn: what do you make of that quote. >> what i'm responding to is i think what we are dealing with is a tell poar a temporal thing. it would drive the markets down and create say could and uncertainty. the president is saying we can't go through that again. megyn: he's wanting not only to raise it but to have uniform authority to raise. a fewer years ago they were saying that was a failure of leadership. >> he may not get it but he's right to argue that way the republicans have been doing this has been irresponsible. let's get this done in the way our democracy has worked the for hundreds of years. not this new extraordinary thing. i think he's right to put pressure on the republicans. megyn: i
in '95 there was an impasse and the government shut down. newt gingrich and bill clinton the pressure was so intense there was a settlement in two to three weeks. if we go into january it will be less than two or three weeks. >> thanks so much for being with us this morning. >>> speaking of consequences what might be the political consequences if washington fails to stay clear of the fiscal cliff. cbs news political director john dickerson is here with some thoughts on that. john, good morning. so all of this posturing, to what degree is this this is how the sausage gets made versus this is a legitimate stalemate? >> well it's kind of both at the same time. they are both posturing because both knows to get a deal they want to basically express the most extreme versions of their positions because they know they have to carve away at it they are speaking to boston their bases. on the other hand there's still a sticking point at the center of this. if you clear away everything and look at the tax rates the president says tax rates have to go up on the wealthy by some amo
. >> real quick, who's the republican bill clinton in this case? >> who could argument? i don't know. who is that? maybe michael steele. >> you see where that got me. >> is there a senior statesman in the republican party who could go to the republican right and bring them over? is there one? >> reporter: tom coburn. >> kelly, go ahead. yeah. >> reporter: i would say tom coburn of oklahoma who has a lot of credibility on these conservative issues. bob corker of tennessee is a voice who has been trying to make a bigger imprint. and one of the things to factor into the unity you're seeing with the republican leadership which does feel different this time around is while boehner has been selected by his fellow republicans to be the leader of their conference as speaker, he must be elected in the new congress in january. so he's got something on the line here, too. there's a lot of confidence about the future of his speakership, but it isn't official yet. and so he's got to play this very carefully from just the perspective of holding on to the gavel. >> kelly o'donnell, thanks very much for
president, bill clint clinton, which is why the republicans wanted to put this forward, he proposed this back in november of last year, testified before a committee here. and he said that this is generally the plan that should go in place. so what these republicans aides who briefed us on this are saying is they decided not to go ahead and respond to the white house offer, which they brought up last week and, remember, republicans said was not serious. instead of responding to that with what republicans have long pushed, for example, the paul ryan budget, they decided to go with this, which is in the words of one staffer, a plan that everybody detests. so they want to start with a framework that nobody likes because that way they each side will maybe be able to give a little bit more. this is definitely a big move, because the republicans are -- democrats said the ball was in their court. they obviously agreed. they're sending a proposal back to the president right now. >> message received. let me give you a moment to catch your breath and thank you as we're hearing stand by. we're
, deserves to be fired for these remarks. >> dan gross, president of the brady campaign and bill rhoden of "the new york times" respond. >>> a tribute video to hillary clinton has everyone talking about a presidential run. >> people not just like her. >> michael tomasky joins me on that later. >>> and republican runner up rick santorum has a new gig at the weekly world news. not quite, but it's close. detail its ahead. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans?

-com boom wag going on. what is the worst that president clinton can do. this is moment for leaders. bill o'reilly is right. there is a vacuum on this list. martha: to that end what would picking sandra fluke for example, where we are and who we focus on? take this young woman and make her into one of the stars of the democratic national convention? what does that say about us as a society? melissa: well in a way she is just, political pawn or an icon for the campaign, the obama campaign ran which was a very negative campaign implying that republicans were anti-women and soft on rape and horrible things clearly not true. i like, i wrote in the "boston herald", i like sandra fluke is the poster girl for. consider the resume'. 32 and still in college. let's look at her life. her claim to fame, she went as 31, 32-year-old in congress someone needs to pay my bills for me. how classic is that? you have combination of self-absorption unwilling to take responsibility for her actions. she is almost a perfect pick. martha: you look at the question, ask yourself seriously who would i pick, who should
absolutely right. even bill krystal agrees with them. the economy boomed during the middle of the clinton two administrations when the high tax rate was at 39.6%. we had a huge expansion of productivity and everybody was feeling quite prosperous as i recall. and so the question is why not seriously go back to something like that again? i think we can stipulate that nobody wants to pay more taxes. i don't want to pay any more taxes, you don't, but we've just come through this period where we've funded two huge, expensive wars and didn't pay for it, and now the bill is coming due. what a surprise. we've got to get around to paying for it. >> what about this idea of killing this carried interest notion and also increasing the amount charged against dividends. of course, warren buffett has suggested if you're earning over $1 million in terms of your capital benefits, then you should be tacked at a minimum of 30%. does that make sense? >> it certainly makes sense that the carrot interest, this province of private he can quit guys like mitt romney that we've been talking about for years, should go
